Celebration (noun):

The action of marking one's pleasure at an important event or occasion by engaging in enjoyable, typically social, activity.

I once was told age is more than just counting years; it’s about your attitude. It is never too late to begin again or have a fresh vision. Even when your body gets older, your heart can always stay young.

All of this great advice came from my television, as I got ready for work, just a couple days before my 24th birthday. And, considering how unintentional it was, I believe this was meant to share. 

I’m always excited to celebrate life and this year’s celebration was spectacular. I spent time with friends, hung out and ate all of my favorite foods.

There are a thousand things to get into in D.C. and South Florida, and I tried to fit them all in. Of course, I have a video highlighting everything from the beach to monuments.

I listed all of the things that I did below, just in case you want to check them out!
